The X5 is the newest symmetrical frame designed in cooperation with Championship racer and freestyle pilot Jon Casey (aka Highwind). If you don’t know Jon, he was the #1 ranked pilot in the 2015 IDRA standings. This is the result. A pure competition frame – minimalist, low drag, very light and able to run extreme camera angles.
The Highwind X5 features a 4mm one piece main body X frame shape that accommodates any 22xx size motor. Motor to motor distance is 213mm and fits up to 5″ props. At only 71g with all hardware, the X5 is very light and when combined with aggressive 5″ props, provides a very high power to weight ratio resulting in extreme performance and lightning fast direction changes. Those characteristics make this the ultimate racing and freestyle frame. It will take your flying experience to the next level and let you explore your true potential.
NOTE: This frame is no longer in production, the latest version of the frame is only available for purchase at rotorgeeks
